Summery Salmon with Coriander pesto

Summer is almost here!! Oh well, it should be here except where we are, as the temperature keeps dropping down instead of going up. It started to get to me, I mean I was born in a country were the sun shines even when it is cold and winter. So what's better than cooking a nice summery dish to uplift ones spirit? This salmon dish was lovely and the pesto so refreshing. It was the first time Gloria was going to try salmon, so I made sure it was luscious enough to get her little taste buds tingle..and it worked! She liked it! We enjoyed it with a nice salad and some bread. It didn't make the sun shine and come out, but it definitely made us feel warm, happy and satisfied.

Summery Salmon with Coriander pesto
makes: 2-4 salmon fillets (depending from size)

1 clove garlic
1 cup coriander
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. lime juice
2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 180.
In a food processor or blender add the garlic (slightly chopped), coriander olive oil, lime juice and salt (just a pinch to start with). Blend for few minutes until you have a creamy pesto (taste it and add more salt if needed).
Put some tin foil on a baking dish and place salmon fillets. Spread the cilantro pesto on salmon fillet and top with the chopped tomatoes. Bake for about 15 minutes.
